Utilizing equipment from my business, ENGRAVESTONE, I have rendered several drawings on various stone materials. The evolution from the original drawing to finished engraving is where my interest lies. It is a challenge to make a composition originally drawn on paper to work on a stone surface. Even though they are essentially the same image, they are two entirely different pieces of art.
This is a process of creating a composition, digitizing, deconstructing, engraving, then reconstructing and finishing the artwork. There are many design challenges along the way. And, as the images increase in size, considerations for moving and displaying must be made. These tiles are heavy but fragile.
